It’s been awhile since Winona Ryder, star of a vast array of films from “Edward Scissorhands” to “Girl Interrupted,” has really taken the lead in a picture – lately she’s mostly been a supporting player in films like “Black Swan,” “Star Trek,” and her upcoming reteaming with director Tim Burton on the stop-motion “Frankenweenie.” Unfortunately, if the trailer for her upcoming return to leading lady status “The Letter” is any indication of the film that follows, we’re not quite sure we’re ready to have her back.

While J. Blakeson's underrated feature debut "The Disappearance Of Alice Creed" didn't exactly blow up the box office, it did find its way in front of the right people in Hollywood, and they soon came knocking. Over at Warner Bros., he's already been tapped to direct "The Imitation Game," a hot script that has seen hot directors like David Yates, Ralph Fiennes and Bryan Singer among those being sought for the gig. And now, he's got another big project in the works, and it looks like it will roll first, with a pretty decent name attached.

Okay, so saying "The Hangoover Part 3" has a villain is a bit of stretch -- the series has thus far featured guys who give the Wolf Pack trouble, but aren't necessarily their enemy -- but regardless it does allow for the opportunity to let some good actors have some fun. In "The Hangover Part 2," Paul Giamatti got to the chew the scenery, and now another name we really like will get do to the same.

As Channing Tatum has navigated Hollywood and impressively built his career along the way (three #1 movies in 2012, just sayin'), he's also amassed a helluva Rolodex. And it seems he's called in favors from everyone for "10 Years." The project, produced by Tatum, comes from “Dear John” and "We Are Marshall" writer Jamie Linden (who is also makes his directorial debut) and stars Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Brian Geraghty, Anthony Mackie, Kate Mara, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Scott Porter, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza and Oscar Isaac in a dramedy about a group of friends who, you guessed it, gather for the ten-year reunion.

There’s no hiding the fact that Ridley Scott’s summer sci-fi adventure “Prometheus” was divisive amongst moviegoers and critics alike, and we certainly had some heated discussions of our own here at The Playlist. But now that the dust has settled – and we’re a little over two months away from the film’s theatrical release – it would seem like it’s time to put away all “Prometheus” verbal sparring for now...at least until the DVD/Blu-ray comes out.
